During my short time of being involved with Maisha I must admit, I am genuinely surprised and pleased to how open and honest the team are. They are so supportive, caring and passionate about their projects which is so endearing to see.
Helping out at Maisha was one of the highlights of my time in Kenya. The kids there are brilliant, they are all so enthusiastic and it’s clear that they love being at the school.
The dedication from everybody there amazed me, from the kids being so eager to learn, to the teachers and parents doing everything possible to aid them. The volunteers who have helped there have done an amazing job.
I have been sponsoring a young girl for 12 months now. I just light up when I get her letters. When I recently got a letter saying “she loves me a lot” I started crying happy tears.
It’s amazing that you can get so easily attached to a child you’ve never met, but it really happens. I almost feel guilty that I may be getting as much or more from this than she is! It also helps make me a better person and appreciate what I have.
When you sponsor one of these beautiful children, in the beginning you think you are doing them a favour. However, after a while you begin to realise that it’s him or her who is saving you. I set out to change their lives instead they changed mine.
I had such a fantastic time. It still is astonishing to me, how generally people in Kenya give so much, even though they have so little. Their generousity and hospitality among volunteers, is amazing.
I recommend everyone, who wants to do something different go, and explore Nakuru. Check out Maisha and its very friendly staff. Meet these great kids and make a difference.

After 18 months since our last visit; due to the pandemic, we finally managed to visit our children albeit briefly (due to new safety protocols). Whilst the visit was totally different to usual - socially distancing, masks etc we were able to catch up on our students both individual and as a group.

They were happy to see us but they hate the masks just as much as the rest of us 😷

As of now less than 6% of Kenya’s population have had the covid vaccine but we are hopeful restrictions will ease before the majority of our children complete primary school in 2022 for their graduation celebrations to go ahead as planned.

Today we surprised two needy families with some food hampers delivered right to their front doors! Items included 25kg rice, sugar, ugali flour, 5kg cooking oil and 10kg of soap.

The day was nicely rounded off by bumping into a previously sponsored student who is working in a small kiosk shop during the university holidays. The road where we stopped has 100s of kiosks and fate brought us to him! Keep up the good work Josphat we are so very proud of you.
